Gardens and Driveway
From the shore road the pillored driveway sweeps up to the back of the house where there is a good sized parking area for several cars, with car port.
The front garden has been lovingly restored and maintained with several outstanding features including well crafted stone walls set over several tiers, a large patio area which leads to a perfectly cut lawn with picket fence ensuring it’s child and pet friendly. The back garden is set on a slope, however the current owners employed contractors to tier it to make it an appealing and usable outdoor area. Several outhouses / greenhouses allow storage for garden equipment and for those green fingered amongst us. The land at the back stretches for a further approximate 50 feet past the trees at the top. From both the front and back gardens the views of the Firth of Clyde across to the Ayrshire coast are out of this world.
A lot of the furniture in this property is negotiable and available for private purchase.
